the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014. The new owners are calling it the Creston Country Market and Deli.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market. If you are like me and must have "Half & Half" for your morning coffee ( or afternoon iced coffee), let me tell you that the milk, etc. is delivered on Wednesdays or Thursdays ! Also, they have on hand some top tier, fancy cakes  and pastries, for $3 per generous serving.  So, if you have a sweet tooth and check out the counter !

    NEWSFLASH::  The Creston Women's Club is looking to partner with private citizens and local businesses to up the cash awards for the long standing scholarship program.  Since 1985, over $85,000 has been awarded to local residents for any type of school of "higher learning" or trade school, whatever. There was a very good program from about 1960 through 1983, with thousands handed out over that 23 year period. If you know anyone who would like to make a tax deductible donation specifically for the CWC scholarship program, please snail mail a check -- in any amount, no matter how small  -- made out to the "Creston Women's Club"  with a note on the check  "Scholarship program". You will be sent a letter that includes the CWC  501 3c  non-profit ## for your records.  Snail mail donations to:    CWC Scholarship Program,  PO  Box 63, Creston, CA 93432

  Friday,  April 24th  Spaghetti Feed hosted by the Women's Club,  5  - 8 PM at the Community Center.  Dinners are $12 for adults and open to the entire community plus the 200 - 300 or so bicycle riders that are signed up for the Wildflower Bike Ride, hosted by the San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club. There should be about 1300 riders starting on Saturday, the 25th, coming from all over CA, on three routes: 50 miles, 75 miles, and 100 miles. The ride is normally very well organized and many of the profits are donated back into our community ( and Shandon, too ). There is a flier detailing the ride posted onto the Creston Community Bulletin Board in front of the Post Office.

   Saturday, April 25th, at the Community Center,  1 PM,  fabulous barbeque hosted by the Creston Volunteer Firefighters Association, and will be primarily attended by the 1300 bicyclists coming from all over the West for the annual Wildflower Ride.  This ride has three divisions:  50 miles, 75 miles, and 100 miles. All the routes go through Shandon, where that community will be serving lunch. The ride itself is hosted by the San Luis Obispo Bicylcle Club. Thankfully, I noticed today that quite a few wildflowers are still along the roads, particularly the Lupine and the Sticky Monkey Flowers.

   Monday, May 4th  7 PM at the Community Center,  Women's Club meeting, open to all Creston area ladies who would enjoy meeting new neighbors and helping out with the Scholarship Program. This club is hosting three fund raisers this year:  The Spaghetti Feed this Friday, the June 6th Bingo Burger Bash ( at the Community Garden on Swayze Street ) and the new and exciting family fun day called Creston Crazy Daze being held Oct. 3rd. Mark your calendar !

   Monday, June 1st  7 PM at the Community Center, Women's Club meeting.  This is the last meeting before the summer break. No meetings in July or August, except for the committee organizing the Crazy Daze event. We sometimes hold this meeting in the Garden with a little appetizer pot luck and lots of laughter. The balmy summer evenings are perfect in our wonderful Community Volunteer Garden.  All local ladies are always welcome to join us.

   Saturday, June 6th,  Bingo Burger Bash in the Garden; usually the food begins at 4 PM,  the Bingo starts around 5 PM, and tickets can be purchased from any member of the Women's Club. A large poster will be at the community bulletin board in front of the post office with more details as they become available. This fund raiser is a joint venture with the local Creston 4 H. The fabulous food is cooked on site by the 4 H, and there will be an auction using raffle tickets for some interesting items gathered by locals. If you have something like a wine basket to donate ( or know someone ! ) please contact Rosie at 238-1662 and we appreciate all of the community support for this event.

The Creston Pool usually opens up the Tuesday after the school year ends. So, perhaps the pool will open the week of June 15th - 20th.  Keep an eye out for the poster on the Bulletin Board.  The Creston Community Association is the club that raises the funds to keep our pool open and free to locals. That club is hosting a raffle right now and selling tickets to win either a rifle or $1000 cash.  Contact Vicki via their Facebook page to order your raffle tickets or stop by the Bittle Day Care Center during regular working hours to get more details. I believe that the raffle will be held in June.
